Two main petroleum provinces are described for the central part of the Eastern Venezuelan basin. These include the southern foreland platform near the Orinoco, with its heavy oil fields of the Faja Petrolifera, and in the north, the giant El Furrial and related traps in the frontal thrusts of the Serrania. To identify the petroleum systems and define attractive petroleum plays in this complex foreland fold and thrust belt system, an integrated geologic model of the area has been built using Stratigraphic, structural, reservoir, and geochemical data. The major results of the study are as follows: (1) a reliable...

Petroleum Basins of South America
A monumental collection on the geology of South American basins. Jointly published by AAPG, YPFB, and Academia Nacional de Ciencias de Bolivia, this volume offers 41 papers (800 pages), covering more basins in greater detail than any previous South American compilation. The publication is organized into five sections: Regional Setting (6 papers); Paleozoic Basins (7 papers); Mesozoic Rifts (7 papers); Andean Basins (8 papers); Northern South America (13 papers).
